Issues of Old Age
Answers to questions
The World, The Church and Older People
At our conference each year we analyse the feedback to see what issues participants would like to see addressed next time. Then we put them into the programme for the next conference. The sessions for our conference this year are listed below. We also listen to participants’ when they say where they would like it to be held. This year it is in Manchester, a city with good transport links. We look forward to seeing you there!
